650ml bottle pours a dark brown color with a finger of light tan head which leaves a thin film of lacing behind. Aroma is mild roasted malts and hops. Taste is malty sweet with a light roasted bitterness and some hoppy bitterness thrown in as well. Decently balanced flavors and a medium body with some light carbonation. A tasty porter that I enjoyed sampling.

Bomber. Pours a dark bruin body with an off white head. Roasted bitter malt tones, light char, and a chewy caramel and hoppy body. Sticky dark malts with a drying bitter and a strong roast y finish. Light licorice gives it a kiss of sweetness. Not bad.

Tap @ Parkway. Dark brown pour with a minimal white head leaving minimal lace. More coffee in the nose than I like. Nicely balanced, medium body with chocolate, coffee and a it of licorice. Finish is a shade oily, as it should be. Nicely balanced between sweet and dry, I appreciate this porter as not being the typical PNW dry, roasted-to-the-bejeezus, coffee-flavored porter.
